Rotor relaxation: The ACH160 is the perfect balance between additional weight and luxury.
The world’s first ACH160 was delivered to a customer in Brazil just before the 17th edition of the Annual Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE). According to data from the Brazilian General Aviation Association (ABAG), more than 2,500 airports and 1,300 heliports in Brazil use corporate aviation services via jets, turboprops, piston aircraft and helicopters, making the Latin American country a huge potential for the ACH160.
“We are very proud that the world’s first ACH160 has been delivered here in Brazil, and look forward to seeing its distinctive and elegant silhouette flying through the skies of São Paulo, stated Jean-Luc Alfonsi, Managing Director of Airbus Helicopters’ Brazilian customer centre, Helibras. “Helibras is the leader in the Brazilian turbine helicopter executive aviation segment and we are confident the ACH160 will set new standards for customers and operators wanting to make a distinctive choice in terms of safety, comfort and performance”.
All in all, the ACH160 is a class-leading combination of range, speed, and of course, luxury.
